    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children (Philadelphia, PA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I got a phone call on a Monday to come in for an interview on Wednesday of the same week. When I arrived the office was crowded and I could tell that they where in desperate need of help. I arrived on time but had to wait about 20 minutes after my scheduled interview time due to the office being super crowded with patients and the staff including the manager,who interviewed me where very busy handling patients. When the manager finally came out to bring me back to be interviewed she seemed to be in a rush. She asked me typical interview questions and then told me about the position.She sent me to the hospital's HR department where I interviewed again with a recruiter who asked more typical interview questions (tell me about yourself, why saint Christopher's, ect..) After that interview she gave me a benefits packet which was a packet telling about the benefits their employees receive and told me that she would contact me within the same week.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children.

    Interview

    My acutual interview was great..it was about 20mins.. My manager asked my questions specific to the job title and unit. In our unit its important to multi-task and manage time correctly, that was one thing that was bought up during the interview. Medical terminology is preferred, however, if you dont have medical terminology..please study and/or volunteer in the hospital prior to applying to the position . You may have a better chance of being selected. Other than that the interview itself was a very typical interview

    Negotiation

    I negoiated a .10 cent increase (they need to pay more for the quality of work they are asking for)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at St. Christopher's Hospital for Children (Phila, PA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was not hard easy typical interview questions. Management needs to do better in screening their potential candidates. They need to stop focusing on experience with EHR and focus on actual hands on experience. HR also needs to get rid of the people that do nothing for the company just get a pay check. One or two rotten apples spoils a bunch.
